on reading Reading Lolita in Tehran. I tried (I read the first 68 pages on Saturday) but I think for the first time in my whole life I quit a book. Earlier this fall I read The Kite Runner, A Thousand Splendid Suns & Three Cups of Tea all of which are set in/about the lives of Afghanistan. I enjoyed all three of those books, read them kinda back to back and was talking about them at a recent book club meeting. I read in Real Simple about Reading Lolita & then someone from book club also recommended it, so I thought it would be good. I’m not sure if the writing style just wasn’t working for me or if I’m just kinda over that Afghanistan setting for now. I’ve put it on a list to try to read it later on this year or maybe next year. Just thought I’d share my confession with the world!
